Easy Apple Morning Pies

Somewhere along the way I saw a recipe for making homemade Pop-Tarts and I thought I would like to try it. But Pop-Tarts are so sugary and having grown up in a house with a nurse, I can’t shake the feeling that Pop-Tarts are “Bad”. “Bad, bad, bad”. I like to be bad once in a while. The closer I get […]

Cherry Cobbler Breakfast Cake

This pan of heaven came about because I had leftover cream cheese filling from making Fruit and Cream Cheese Turnovers. And because I bought a can of cherry pie filling since I did not have one on hand but had been needing a cherry pie filling pastry bad, real bad. So, my mind got busy and created Cherry Cobbler Breakfast […]

Egg & Hash Brown Frittata

Technically, a Frittata is a baked omelet full of any goodies that you like. I just happen to like to add a hash brown crust to mine before I add the egg mixture. Is it still a Frittata if it has a crust? Let’s say that it is, otherwise it is too late in the evening for me to be […]

Fruit Turnovers with Cream Cheese Filling

Turnovers are such an easy and fun addition to a “Breakfast in Bed” menu, or any breakfast for that matter. Unlike pie dough where I am a bit picky, the store-bought refrigerated puff pastry dough is just fine for me. I had planned on having cherry turnovers but could not find a can of cherry pie filling in my cupboard, […]

Orange Zest Whipped Cream

It does not get much simpler than this Orange Zest Whipped Cream, but boy does it deliver on taste. I added it to a “Breakfast in Bed” menu and I have to say, it very well may have been the shining star that morning. The subtle fresh citrus taste added just a touch of brightness to the bowl of fresh […]

“Breakfast In Bed” – A Classic Menu

I am not sure if I have ever had breakfast in bed, if so, it was in a land far, far away. Actually, if truth be told, I prefer to eat lunch and dinner foods for breakfast and breakfast foods later in the day. Those close to me know that I would pick a chili-dog over an egg for breakfast. […]

Swiss Cheese Omelet

The Swiss Cheese that my husband purchased at a local Farmer’s Market made its way into an omelet for breakfast and it was heaven on a plate. Melty ooey gooey cheese and personalized fillings made us happy people Sunday morning. His omelet had mushrooms, onions, garlic, sausage, peppers and tomatoes, in addition to the Swiss Cheese. I preferred an omelet with […]

Cheddar Biscuits with Chive Cream Cheese

These little biscuits were the “Winner Winner Chicken Dinner” favorites in my Breakfast Baskets for our preschool teachers. Being a “savory” myself, I know that they were my favorites when I sampled them, slightly winning out over the Brown Butter Apple Muffins in the category of “how many I wolfed down today”. I packaged two biscuits in little tins with plastic […]

Happy National Grilled Cheese Day!

Hooray! Today is National Grilled Cheese Day! I have been waiting all year for this day to arrive. Ok, not really. I had never heard of it until a few weeks ago when I saw it in my Food Network magazine. But I was all over it when I heard the news, being a grilled cheese lover and all. I […]

Hash & Hash Brown Egg Cups

These are a fabulously delicious morning treat. They are super easy but have a few steps involved so you can’t be in a rush. But… If you make extras on a slow morning, you can freeze some and then enjoy one on the mornings when you are rushing. Brilliant, don’t ya think? I got my breakfast all planned out this […]

a “PANcake” for Breakfast

I have been fooling around with basic recipes lately looking for the best ones, or at least just like perfect. My dad always made fabulously delicious pancakes but he claims that he didn’t do anything special. I’m thinking he just doesn’t want to dish on his secret recipe. I found a recipe in the Feb/March 2015 issue of “allrecipes” for […]

Coffee Can Pumpkin Bread

A family member makes the moistest pumpkin bread that I have ever tasted. And the super fun thing is that she makes them in coffee cans…does anyone remember that? I do! I have the old-time black and white photo… The interesting thing is that metal coffee cans are harder to find these days because many are made of plastic or […]

Homemade Old-Time Doughnuts

When I was a kid, my mom would make homemade doughnuts for the first snowfall. They were delicious! Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside with just a hint of a taste that has only come close in a Cider Doughnut.   They are easy to make but they do take some time since you are cooking them […]

Scandinavian Almond Cake

I received this fabulous pan as a gift along with a recipe for Scandinavian Almond Cake. The pan was recently purchased at a German Christmas Market and I couldn’t wait to try it out. I made the cake as the recipe indicated but the next time, I would cut down on the sugar by at least 1/4 cup because it is […]

Honey Greek Yogurt with Chocolate Granola and More

The “More” part of this food idea is actually the best part. These can be put into individual serving jars, like mason jars with lids, so that you can give them as gifts – as long as they are eaten or refrigerated soon! Or…go check out this recipe for Vanilla S’mores Yogurt…it elevates that wonderful camp treat!
